How To Be A Wrap Star This Christmas

Filed in : DIY & CRAFTS, Lifestyle

It’s only a week to go before Christmas Day (where does time go?), and it’s time to indulge in my favourite part of Christmas preparations. Yep, you guessed it, GIFT WRAPPING! Okay, maybe you didn’t guess that, but I’m sure it probably comes as no surprise that I absolutely love wrapping gifts and arranging them […]

Coping With Loss During The Holiday Season

Filed in : Lifestyle

It’s crazy how you never quite know what’s coming at you from one minute to the next. Two weeks ago I got all excited about putting up the Christmas tree. Given my penchant for all things bright and beautiful, and the huge progress I’ve made in my healing over the years, I relished the level […]

Persimmon And Fennel Tomato Salad

Filed in : TASTE

It doesn’t seem like summer is about to show up in London just yet, but as it always looks and feels like summer in my home, now is as good a time as any to create a few quick and easy salad recipes to enjoy as light snacks and starters over the season. First up is the persimmon and fennel […]

Hey, I’m Back At My Desk!

Filed in : Lifestyle

Hey, I’m back at my desk! It’s been six months since I’ve written anything here. Apologies for dashing off without prior notice but I’m sure you all know that life has a tendency to get in the way sometimes. Despite the radio silence right here on the blog, I’ve had quite a few things happening. Some […]

Urban Jungle Bloggers: The Plant Shelfie

Filed in : Interiors, Lifestyle

I love taking shelfies! Which is just great as I never take selfies…it’s just not my thing. Lucky for me, the avid shelfie snapper, November’s Urban Jungle Bloggers focus is the ‘Plant Shelfie’. This couldn’t be more perfectly timed because my houseplant count has increased significantly over the past month as a result of two gifts […]

Raw Kale and Pistachio Pesto

Filed in : TASTE

I love pesto, I always have. However recently I’ve found that I no longer enjoy the pesto I buy from the supermarket. I’m not entirely sure, but this could be partly because I’ve become a little bored of how ‘samey’ the store bought pesto tastes nowadays. About a year ago, I bought a jar of small […]

Light a Candle Today for International Wave of Light

Filed in : Lifestyle

Once upon a time, I welcomed the month of October purely for its natural beauty. The enchanting splendour of autumn leaves, atop the trees, floating weightlessly through the air and scattered all around us like golden confetti. Of course I still appreciate its beauty, but the significance of October is forever changed for me now. […]

PINK GRAPEFRUIT AND BUTTERSCOTCH CHAMPAGNE SORBET

Filed in : TASTE

It’s hard to believe that summer is already coming to an end, as it seemed to have side-stepped the UK this year. Oh well, given the reputation of ‘Great British Summer’, I kinda knew that my trip to Antigua & Barbuda for Sailing Week earlier this year was going to be my only decent dose of sunshine before […]

DIY: HOW TO MAKE A PRETTY WILDFLOWER WREATH

Filed in : DIY & CRAFTS, Lifestyle

So last weekend I had the pleasure of being a welcomed guest at what I can only refer to as the happiest, sunniest, most tear-jerking wedding ever! It was the wedding of my gorgeous friend Anna and her rather debonair fiancé Ben. I affectionately refer to them as BenAnna, and have found over time that many […]
